The Cost of War. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE WITH THE £3,000,000,000 WASTED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
The Cost of War. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE WITH THE £3,000,000,000 WASTED. Lady Warwick contributes a very thoughtful article to "The Fortnightly Review" on "The Past, Present and Future." These thoughts on wartime lead her to the conclusion that there is growing up a powerful group an xious to have the war go on. "The meni who have put up new plant will .;want to ui-:e it. They will wish to se c:re a reirn for their outlay to keep their large nev establishments to gether. They will not be a force for peace, but for war; they will intrigue to that end; if the purchase leaves a margin of profit they will buy war." The world suffered from the arma ments ring before the year 1914; that ring has now increased and multiplied. The r''anet Saturn is not more com pletely encircled by its ring than we are by ours. The armament firms will he the richest trading companies in the world, and they deal in death. However hard and unpalatable these facts, the world has to face and fight them. War h...
Young St. Stephen's Harrier Wins Three-Mile Event at Caulfield—"Whites" Include Him in Team To-Day. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Young St. Stephen's Harrier Winl Three-Mile Event at Caulfield "Whites" Include Him in Team To-Day. Starting from scratch and runninal easily throughout, Dave Bell, one o! the club's latest juniors, finished very fast and won comfortably the V.A.A.k.t three mile junior race at Caulfield on Saturday last. Tom Thornton (also on scratch) put up a creditable per' f'ormance by obtaining third place. His achievement stamps young Bell as being something out of the ordin ary, and his career as an athlete wil be watched with interest. Severa! other juniors showed good form, anf when conditions again become normai, the club should be as strong as ever both across country and on the tract. In the four mile senior event, whic' was limited to returned soldiers, mili tary rejects and one or two others who received special permission to compete, VW. H. Brown, who conceded starts ranging up to three minute-, finished fourth, and obtained fastest time. W. J. Miller also ran well, fina ishing sixth. ...
Canonising Les Darcy. HOW CALM WE ARE WHEN THE V.C.'S COME HOME! MORBIDITY AND FALSE IDEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Canonising Les Darcy. HOW CALM WE ARE WHEN THE V.C.'S COME HOME! MORBIDITY AND FALSE IDEALS. Les Darcy, -the pugilist, is buried. All matters relating to his personal conduct and character may now pro perly be laid at rest. He stands, as the priests of his Church teach us, before a higher tribunal than that of our public opinion. In this country, where so many young men still shrink from the call of national-duty, we can ill afford to carp about the reluctance of this boy now dead; this boy who had peculiar temptations to hold back. But we still have to face the main position and certain considerations that arise out of it. Sport in.reason is a good thing, and there is. unques tionably a sense in which it is an ex cellent preparation for the tasks and risks of war. But sport is still, in times of crisis, a something ..extrane ous from national necessity. The butcher, the baker, the engine-driver, the man who labors with,.his hands these and a hundred others are neces sary to the Sta...

Soldiers' Widows. 290 HOMES IN ONE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Soldiers' Widows. 290 HOMES IN ONE STATE. The Minister for Lands in N.S.W. has made arrangements for handing cver, on behalf of the State, the 290th home for widows of soldiers. The erection of these homes has already involved an expenditure of about .£60,000, and this is one of the directions in which the war is casting a heavy burden on the State finances. The Australian soldiers are never tired of feeding the pigeons which strut in front of St. Paul's. The i other morning a new amusement was noticed. A stalwart Australian stood like a statue with his arm stretched out and his hand full of peas. "A shilling for the first four birds and sixpence for each one after that set tles on you before the quarter strikes," said an excited old gentle man. Breathlessly we all watched. Seven birds alighted. on the Austra lian, and as the clock struck half-a crown was duly handed over.
From Various Sources [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
From Various Sources.i The "No" vote showed that Aust;ra lia has an immense army-of- Re fusiliers! He was a bull-throwing citizen;, -and as he leaned over his fellow passen ger's shoulder to get a glimpse of the evening paper, he kept up a irunning fire of comment of what the. Ameri, cans would do -when- they came in. Reviewing a p r 11telling of Britain's siuccess in battle, he sang out, so that everybody in the car could hear: "Gee, some fight!" "Some don't," was the quaint rejoinder of the man who owned the paper, and was some what tired of the interjectors. --"Variety." After the annual motor hold-up in Sydney last week, one traffic constabtle reported that his only catch hadbeen "a holy father without' his license." Well: well! For the sake of the young couple His Reverence was :driving to, 'tis to..be hoped it was not the license to celebrate marriages that was miss ing.'?Table Talk."

Fond of His Pipe. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Fond of His Pipe. MIr. Ditchfield, in his entertaining book on "The Parish Clerk," tells a st?ty' of a Lincolnshire curate who was ?r e~t~' is'moker, and who wivas accus tomed't? retif?e to?' the ~vestr'y lefore the sermon and there smoke a pipe while the congregation sang a psalm. :"One Sunday," says Mr. Ditchfield, "he had an extra pipe, and Joshua (they clerk) told him that the people were getting impatient. "Let them sing another psalm,"' said the curate. "They have, sir," replied the clerk. "Then let them sing the hundred and nineteenth," replied the curate. At last he finished his pipe and be *gan to put on the blackgown, but its folds were troublesome and he ceould not get it on. "I -,think the devil's in .the gown," muttered the curate. "I think he be," dryly replied old Joshua.
Electric Tramway Profits Depleted by New Drainage Work.—Unexpected Outlay to Keep Track Dry. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Electric Tramway Profits Depleted by New Drainage Work.--Unex pected Outlay to Keep Track Dry. Trams on the Prince's-bridge to Burwood track have been running for a twelvemonth or so, but gangs of men are still digging up the road. It can, of course, be readily understood that the maintenance of the track ne cessitates the employment of repair ers, but the fact that so many men are employed from time to time at various points has giveri rise to more than passing comment. When Tees dale Smith's team ofrecord-breakers hustled on with the construction of the track, mixed admiration and criticism were passed. It was gen erally admitted that the men worked at top speed, but they were mostly all well skilled in their craft, and their. work won the approval of the inspecting engineers, and the track was taken over by the Trust. The contractor "built the track ac cording to plans and specifications, and experience seems to have shown that insufficient provision was made at the beginning for...

Hot Soup at Midday for Children at School — Eager Throng Around Tureen at Cremorne Street. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Hot Soup at Midday for Children at School - Eager Throng Around Tureen at Cremorne Street. Though criticism had been directed against the proposal on the ground that it was unnecessary and tended. to convey an impression that children of Richmond schools were impoverish ed and uncared for, those who were present could not help noting the eag erness and expectancy of the chil dren who pressed in with pannikins in hand for hot soup at the inaugura tion ot the scheme at Cremorne-street school on Thursday. Mr. Cotter, M.L.A., ladled out soup in cups and pannikins until the sup ply of 10 gallons was exhausted. There is an average daily attendance of 600 children at the school, and it had been noted that generally about 30 of them brought lunch to school with them. Notification of the soup distribution was made to the various classes, and on this occasion about 100 children remained. In nearly every instance the children were neatly dressed and showed some evidence of parental care. It wa...
Nursery Rhyme Sermons "JACK SPRAT." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Nursery.Rhyme Sermons "JACK SPRAT." You will find my.text, brethren, in the Book of Nursery Rhymes, oppo site a sweetly idyllic picture repre Ssenting Jack Sprat at one side of the dinner-table, his wife at the other, a smile upon their rubicund counten dhces, the last morsel upon their forks, and the empty platter between. That picture, brethren, depicts all the philosophy of matrimony. We are not told that Jack Sprat could, and did, eat lean; that his wife could, and did. eat fat. No, brethren. We are simply told that the one "could eat no fat," the other "could eat no lean." Were my text to stop here we might hastily conclude that the couple were either vegetarians or fruitarians, and that they lived on nuts, bananas, and watercress. But, brethren, my text does not stop here. Jack Sprat was no Hun, his wife no fat Frau. They were both true-born Britons; the platter, to be gin with, was well laden, to end with, "clean." The one who could eat no fat ate all the lean, the one who co...

Dispute of the Labor Leagues Fought Out With the Doors Closed and the Windows Curtained.—Wordy Duel Between Leaders. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917

Lively interest is being displayed by those intimate with the inner working of the Labor movement re garding the inquiry held by a special committee of the Central Executicve of the Political Labor Council in con nection with the peculiar position created by the establishment of two Labor branches in Richmond. It is understood that the inquiry was brought about at the instance of the branch which meets once a month under the presidency of Cr. Bell in the Oddfellows' Hall, Church-street. Cr. Bell and Cr. Joyce gave evidence at the inquiry, and subsequently Mr. G.
